Ian Blair- Sim­monds, chair­man of the Bri­tish Le­gion’s Oban branch said: ‘Our main aim is to look af­ter vet­er­ans. We’re here to help in any way we can and we need mem­bers to keep on do­ing our good work.’

Branch mem­bers meet ev­ery sec­ond Friday of the month at The Oban Lodge Com­mer­cial on Al­bany Street. ‘At the mo­ment we only have two main events a year, Char­i­ties Day and Re­mem­brance Sun­day. We would love to get more in­volved, but we sim­ply don’t have the man­power for it,’ added Mr Blair- Sim­monds.
